Lowe Vineyard

New South Wales

You can follow a walking and cycling trail through the orchards and vines of this idyllic biodynamic farm, past donkeys and chickens to picnic grounds. The cellar door has tastings, with preservative-free wines and vegan wines both worth trying, along with the two superb grazing platters ($35) featuring local flavours. The renowned restaurant Zin House is on the grounds. Check the website for events too.
